SkyCity Entertainment Group has announced it’s new director Rob Campbell is to replace Chris Moller who will retire from New Zealand’s only listed casino company at the end of this year. Rob Campbell was appointed as a non-executive director to the SKYCITY board, following a search conducted by SEQEL Partners.

SkyCity deputy chair Bruce Carter said Moller had been an “outstanding” chair and guided the company through some of its most important achievements, including the construction of the New Zealand International Convention Centre and the casino licence extension in Auckland.

Campbell will take over from Moller on Jan. 1, 2018. An economist by training, he is currently chair of retirement village operator Summerset Group, and campervan rental company Tourism Holdings, and is a director of commercial property investor Precinct Properties New Zealand – all NZX listed companies. His previous directorships include the Bank of New Zealand, New Zealand Post, Ports of Auckland, Accident Compensation Corporation and Freightways. He was also formerly the chair of the Auckland City Mission Foundation.

An economist by training, Mr Campbell’s career has included academic, union leadership and consulting roles. He currently advises a number of private equity and hedge funds globally.

Moller said Campbell had an excellent reputation and track record of management and governance of complex companies.
